. unless i missed it, one of the priorities you did not mention was a clean energy standard, and that was a priority of previous committee chairman, and wondered why that wasn't one of the priorities of senator wyden. and if the answer is, it is no chance of passing the house, or it has no chance of passing the house -- i would be interested in hearing your thoughts on that and your thoughts on why energy standard is not a viable strategy no. >> sure. i think actually you took my list of priorities to literally, because as i kind of lumped the thinking about climate and moving to a low carbon economy into kind of a two different track, both of which need to be moving in parallel. so i would do, all talk about energy efficiency and clean energy finance and things like that, the things we're working on. the same time you have to have this continuing conversation to develop something along the lines of a clean energy standard as one possible tool to get the power sector a very transparent set of rules that would reduce emissions over time. that's one viable pathway. there may b

cuts would jeopardize our military readiness. they'd devastate priorities like education, energy, and medical research. they would certainly slow our recovery, and cost us hundreds of thousands of jobs. democrats, republicans, business leaders, and economists have already said that these cuts, known here in washington as the sequester, are a really bad idea. now, some in this congress have proposed preventing only the defense cuts by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training, medicare and social security benefits. that idea is even worse. [applause] yes, the biggest driver of our long-term debt is the rising cost of health care for an aging population. and those of us who care deeply about programs like medicare must embrace the need for modest reforms -- otherwise, our retirement programs will crowd out the investments we need for our children, and jeopardize the promise of a secure retirement for future generations. but we can't ask senior citizens and working families to shoulder the entire burden of deficit reduction while asking nothing more from the
